Teaching Goals Inventory

This site offers the Teaching Goals Inventory (TGI) online, a self-assessment of instructional goals for college and university instructors. The purpose of the TGI is threefold: to help teachers become more aware of what they want to accomplish in individual courses; to help faculty locate classroom assessment techniques that they can adapt and use to assess how well they are achieving their teaching and learning goals; and to provide a starting point for discussion of teaching and learning goals among colleagues. This site allows users to fill out the inventory online and automatically see their scores. Score reports will also contain comparative scores from large samples. The TGI might be useful for teachers when they are developing a new course, revising a course, writing or re-writing their philosophy of teaching, or participating in a curriculum review.
